|About the Book|
I dont know how authoritative this dude is... but he wrote an entire book about umbrellas... and I read it.The most interesting, and also most questionable chapters of this book were the ancient origins of umbrellas. Sometimes I feel like the author was stretching a bit to see umbrellas in hieroglyphics, but it was interesting nonetheless. I found myself saying did you know...?! about every other sentence, much to the annoyance of everyone else in the room. That lasted for a couple of chapters, until I reached the modern umbrellas.I would recommend this to any fan of umbrellas.
